Katy Perry Ridiculed After Threatening Lawsuit over “Left Shark” Replica

Katy Perry found herself the subject of press ridicule after her lawyers sent a cease-and-desist letter to a 3D printing service for selling a replica of the Left Shark made popular by its awkward dancing in Perry’s Super Bowl XLIX halftime show. The singer (and her lawyers) were slammed for trying to control the spread of a costume that was not protected by copyright. Press accused Perry’s team of “desperately” trying to assert control in what amounted to a “show of hubris.”
